After a particularly interesting date that I went on this past year, along with remarks from friends, it has finally sunk into my mind how dating someone who always has thoughts of other, more adventurous, exciting worlds always floating in their mind can influence their outlook on life, and how others view them. Aside from enduring hard life hurdles (aka writing inspiration) like health issues, love, loss, etc., I tend to find my mind in some faraway place more often than not. So when I go on a date, a lot of avenues open up for me.
Outside of those four points, I’ve caught myself noting clever lines a date might say, which can inspire a connection, if only for a moment. Sometimes, dates repeat lines I’ve heard many before, which makes dating a sobering experience altogether. It tends to re-emphasize that finding someone with original content is very important, so it’s important to pay attention to every moment with someone new in order to not end up with plagiarized material.
